Elizabeth River Tunnels: Downtown/Midtown/MLK

Seventh Point works with Southeastern Transportation Partners (STP) to provide public relations support for The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT). Our full-time dedicated public information officer works directly with VDOT to manage public relations, marketing, and community relations for Elizabeth River Tunnels. The Seventh Point Public Affairs Team also developed, launched and maintain a custom communications dashboard, which tracks all PR activities in accordance with the client’s agreement and technical requirements. Our outreach efforts to engage community members bring all key stakeholders to the table, including legislators, municipalities, civic leagues, military, and businesses in Hampton Roads. Special focus was given to creating public awareness and managing community relations throughout the right-of-way acquisitions process, addressing citizens’ concerns to prevent negative reactions toward the Elizabeth River Tunnels project.
